Kafkaesque ‘justice’ in kiwi courts

Man ‘mistakenly’ left in court cells for two nights

‘It was like torture!’

A man was left in the cells of Masterton District Court for two nights at the weekend without food.

“The only question was how long he would spend in a windowless cell with a toilet, a tap, a concrete slab for a bed, and a shoe for a pillow.”

He had no toilet paper, no mattress, and no natural light, reports said.

“One of the things he said was, it was like torture. [There was] no way of knowing how long he would be there or when he would get out,” his barrister Susie Barnes said.

It’s entirely possible that the victim, who has name suppression after pleading guilty to drink-driving, and was being held in the cell while his bail conditions were typed up, was conveniently forgotten and was being extrajudicially punished by police.

The State’s other Stinking Secrets: Why authorities fiddle the figures for road fatalities

Truth hurts New Zealand’s $10-billion tourism industry. The average tourist would not visit this country, if they knew true extent of the daily carnage on our deadly roads.

Truth about the mayhem would also hurt the massive foreign investment in New Zealand.

[The Stock of total foreign investment in New Zealand was at least NZ$ 322,279 million, excluding confidential amounts funneled through Channel Islands, according to a report posted at https://www.nzte.govt.nz/en/invest/statistics/ ]

About two-thirds of the road fatalities in New Zealand go unreported by our political police, or unrecorded by Ministry of Transport [“Minitru”.]

One way to manipulate the road toll statistics, second only to news censorship, is to report most of the dead as being in a “serious/ critical” condition, in “intensive care”, or having “life-threatening” injuries. This way, if the news leaks, they could always be pronounced “dead as a result of their injuries”.

NEWS BLACKOUT continues in New Zealand – DAY 48

Posted by te2ataria on February 4, 2016

Road Fatalities and Tourist Deaths: DAY 48 of latest NEWS BLACKOUT campaign in NZ

Today was also the day thousands of angry protesters shut down intersections in Auckland’s CBD to “send a message” against the TPPA signing.

Trade ministers from the 12 countries joined in the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement (TPPA) today signed the biggest trade deal in history in Auckland, despite the massive public outrage. [What have the people got to do with issues of national interest?]

Council Trade union secretary Sam Huggard said the government did not consider people in the TPPA plan, reports Erin Speedy.
“They didn’t want us to say we want an end to corporate greed.”

“We don’t want them growing up in a country where the government is scared of every movement they make because they’re scared they’re going to p*** off some overseas corporates,” he said. http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/76517301/TPPA-signing-Live-coverage-from-Auckland-as-trade-deal-signed

… and the day when

Our corrupt PM chickened out of attending Waitangi celebrations… “I’m certainly not running scared, I’ve made a commitment to go every year and I have.”

“I can’t go and I won’t go with a gagging order on me,” he said.

Large-scale protests around the country today in response to the Government signing the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA) also meant concerns about potential riots and protests had put him and his security staff in a “dangerous position”.  http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/76578090/ngapuhi-elder-warns-there-will-be-trouble-if-john-key-attends-te-tii-marae

Meanwhile, Japan’s Yamaguchi prefecture began marketing itself as “the new Australia” or more precisely as “the fake Australia” since the two places have absolutely nothing in common!  http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-02-03/japan-prefecture-marketing-itself-as-the-new-australia/7137152

Another story of tourists wronged…

Tourists leave NZ after campervan hell

American tourist David DiMichele and his wife spent “almost US$4,000 (NZ$6,016) getting here, and then another US$2,800 (NZ$4,211) on the campervan for 29 days.”

Predictably, their rental vehicle broke down! [See blog content for defective rental cars and unsafe sports equipment.] “Does it leave a sour taste in my mouth? Absolutely,” said the tourist.   http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11584696

… and the “murder-mystery” deepened…

Rosemary Dey, 31, was found dead in her Newtown flat on Tuesday night. Police say her death is unexplained.

On October 24 last year, police put out a plea for help to find Dey, saying she had last been seen in Christchurch the day before and they had “concerns for her wellbeing”.

Police reported two days later that she had been found.  http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/crime/76569925/woman-found-dead-in-newtown-flat-named-as-rosemary-dey

‘Pregnant women among rising number of homeless in NZ cities’

8:52 PM Thursday Aug 20, 2015 – [cached on Aug 20, 2015 at 14:13:30 GMT.]

By: Lauren Priestley, an NZME News Service reporter.

Pregnant women are among the rising number of homeless people on city streets, with some sleeping rough just weeks out from giving birth.

National Women’s Hospital Maori midwifery adviser Mahia Winder said she was currently looking after three “streeties” who are pregnant.

She has been treating pregnant homeless women at parks, roadsides, brothels and rehab centres for about 10 years – the only one in Auckland doing the job.

An Auckland Council report released in 2014 showed there were about 15,000 “severely housing deprived” people in Auckland, but there are no official figures recording the number of pregnant women in the group.

Ms Winder said the number of pregnant women might be rising, but only in line with the steady increase of homeless people year on year.

And the main concern for the soon-to-be-mums is not usually the impending birth, but survival.

“Usually having the baby is probably about the last thing on their minds. There’s more stress in the fact they’ve got nowhere to live and are usually cold and hungry and broke and often have addiction problems.

“I probably am the only one who looks after homeless pregnant people [in Auckland]. For me, I’m looking after three streeties at the moment who are pregnant and there’s probably a couple more out there seeking midwifery care.”

The lack of emergency housing set up for pregnant homeless women in Auckland was part of the issue, Ms Winder said.

She said new mothers also had difficulty finding housing or emergency accommodation once they gave birth.

“There is nowhere specifically for pregnant women, we haven’t got places for women with mental health issues either, or lots of people that need specialist care.”

Emergency housing provider Danielle Bergin, of Island Child Charitable Trust which usually takes in homeless families, said living on the street or in temporary accommodation was particularly hard for pregnant women.

She was currently housing a mother with a 4-month-old baby who had been pregnant when she applied for a home.

About a year ago, Ms Bergin took in a 28-year-old woman who was heavily pregnant. The woman had the baby and then was forced to return to the emergency housing room in Pt England.

“Here we are a year later, has anything changed? I’m finding it so hard to get the houses now. For families or mothers with babies I’m finding it incredibly hard, there are such long delays.

“There are some serious delays in people having their applications completed and they think they’re on the [social housing] waiting list but they’re not.

“It’s very worrying for women who are so close to birth, there is a nesting instinct. I do think it causes undue stress.”

Lifewise service manager Corie Haddock said the sector was seeing an annual increase in homelessness and marginalised groups, including pregnant women, were the hardest hit.

The organisation was currently looking after one pregnant woman and has helped women who were more than 8 months’ pregnant in the past, he said.

It was “hard to quantify” whether more homeless women were becoming pregnant or more pregnant women finding themselves without a home, he said.

“I think they all want to be good mothers so that pressure of not having somewhere safe and secure to live and for their baby to live must have a detrimental impact on them.

“[We help] anyone and everyone that comes through the door needing support. We’ve had situations in the past where we’ve had young women that are pregnant and I guarantee we’ll have situations in the future as well.”   – NZME. Copyright the author and/or the relevant media/ syndicator.

What Happened to Dead Tourists Stats?

Posted by te2ataria on April 2, 2010

sent by a reader

TODAY’S NEWS BLACKOUT ALERT LEVEL:

‘DEFCON ZERO’  CODE ULTRA-RED

What indeed did happen to the reporting of foreign tourists killed in New Zealand?

If you are one of the blog’s visitors, you may be wondering as to why New Zealand Media are no longer reporting the incidents in which foreigners have been killed in New Zealand the middle of February, 2010.

The blog moderators can confirm that based on a directive signed by half dozen officials and a few ‘unofficials’  including Air Marshal Sir Bruce Reid Ferguson KNZM, OBE, AFC [MIn, CIA, KGB, KIA, LBW…,] the Director of Government Communications Security Bureau and Dr. Warren Tucker [Dr NYLONS,]  Director of Security Intelligence Service, the Prime Minister of New Zealand Mr John Key has imposed a ‘DEFCON ZERO’ akin to a “Code Ultra Red” on the reporting of any such news.

You may still hear about high profile cases, or incidents involving foreigner, where too many witnesses were present, but that would be about all the news you’ll ever hear.

Mr Key has imposed the censorship under the guise of “National Security.”

For your information, an average of about 20 foreign visitors are/will be killed and another 60 seriously injured each month throughout 2010.

An Explanation of Alert Levels:

‘DEFCON ZERO’  CODE ULTRA-RED means ‘Total News Blackout’ with ZERO tolerance for any breaches by the media.

Code RED means: Total News Blackout

Code ORANGE means: Publish the news only if there were too many eyewitnesses, or one or more victim still alive.

Code YELLOW means: Publish with caution. Remove all entries after 24-48 hours.

Codes: Green means: Total freedom of Information. This, of course, will never be allowed in New Zealand.
